The Arts & Business Council tries to bridge two communities that should overlap more 

 In his recent New York Times piece “Slaves of the Internet, Unite!” Tim Kreider blasted the notion that creative talents should be expected to work for free — or condescendingly, for “exposure.” Yet it continues to happen, along with the disturbingly blatant theft of art across all media. At best, it’s a result of miscommunication; at worst, it’s born from the perception that pursuing a career in the arts is more frivolous — and therefore less valuable — than other trades.

That’s a notion the Arts & Business Council of Greater Nashville hopes to change, largely by attacking the (too often, regrettably true) stereotype that creatives lack the business savvy that would help them make a living from their work. For those with talent and a work ethic, the ABC offers an assist with the rest, encouraging collaboration between the arts and business communities and fostering mutually beneficial partnerships.
